Children are always welcome at the Alexandra Hotel & Restaurant. We have family rooms, a play area, large garden and direct road free access to the beach. We have a children’s menu and are happy to supply cots, highchairs, baby listening, or a babysitter when available.

Our children’s menu consist of home cooked fresh local produce and is available at lunch and at supper from 6:30pm. Our large garden has a play area with climbing frame, swings, slide and trampoline. With direct access from the hotel garden to Lyme’s unique sand and shingle beaches the Alexandra is a great family holiday destination.

The Alexandra is the perfect place from which to explore Dorset. Create life long childhood memories searching for fossils along the Dorset cliffs, building sandcastles on the beach or rock-pooling at low tide. Spend a few hours at sea on a mackerel fishing trip; bring back your catch and we’ll cook it for the children’s supper!

“The hotel was extremely comfortable and VERY child friendly (we had our 18 month old with us) and nothing was too much trouble… We will definitely be returning to stay at this special hotel again.”

“The grounds are stunning and it was gorgeous sitting for an evening drink overlooking the stunning views while the kids played croquet… The staff helped us with booking tours and were generally extremely welcoming.”
